Cooperative approach to air traffic services

Objective

In the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), the European Commission is proposing a paradigm shift in the way air traffic services are provided. This shift will be achieved through research to achieve collaborative decision-making in a complete air and airport environment, including innovative research to increase the efficiency of air transport service provision.

The overall objective is to achieve the Single European Sky and Eurocontrol's ATM2000+ Strategy. The research proposed by the Commission combines human factors, safety and airport efficiency with harmonised validation methodologies, supported by business cases and safety assessments. More specifically, the Commission is proposing a cluster of seven research areas, ranging from airport efficiency to cooperative air traffic management (ATM).

The projects that will implement these research areas in FP6 will be based on previous knowledge and, in turn produce new knowledge. The objective of the proposed Cooperative Approach to Air Traffic Services (CAATS) coordination action is to manage, consolidate and disseminate the knowledge produced in the European Commission's FP6 ATM-related projects. The focus will be in three areas: the knowledge produced in the areas of safety, human factors and validation.

The aim is to provide a coordinated approach by all FP6 projects to achieve the Commission's paradigm shift. The aim will be achieved in three workpackages, whose activities will be project management and coordination, including dissemination of the results of CAATS, knowledge management and knowledge consolidation.

The consortium consists of 16 organizations from all parts of Europe, ranging from universities through service providers to engineering consultancies. CAATS will also have two levels of expert groups to provide relevant expertise on specific issues and provide opinions at dedicated dissemination forums. The project will last 24 months.
